Blue skies. Blue water. Blue Croatia.

After a heavy rain the night before, I wake up to quiet waters and blue sky. Have a small breakfast and catch up with my personal diary. I also make several emails to confirm the Piece Prize program in Montenegro and Tirana, Albania.

My brother-in-law arrives at 12:00 and invites me for lunch. We have chicken, chips and a salad.

We pack the kayaks while Pedrig, the owner of the small apartment where we stayed, looks on.

Just over 14:00, we head east down the Croatian coast. The water is calm. Conditions are top. We cover around 23 km before spotting a suitable location at beach Ruskamin, just east of Omis, to put up our tent. We ask the owner of Bikini Bar if we can pitch the tent beside his property. He says yes and then invites us to eat homemade cured ham and fresh fruit from his garden. He is in good spirits. Business was great during the summer season and now he has closed shop for the year, but somehow he still likes the bar.

We stay for a while then I get my toothbrush and smother it with blue toothpaste. I am not allowed to leave without taking a picture to support his local soccer club. Just loving Croatia.
